OBJECTIVES
CPA BELIEVES

1. The 'alternative' is the major part of the truth which is generally not spoken of in the mainstream.

2. There is no one mainstream in India but multiple streams.

3. There is division in India based on unequal classes and this inequality is reflected in all social, economic and political issues.

4. The social contract between the majority of people and the nation by way of the Indian Constitution remains unfulfilled.

5. Neo-liberal policies, communal ideas and exclusionary policies have become the norm, that have penetrated into civil society. This has become the 'common sense' and there is little protest or effort to set this right.

6. There has been a decline in institutions especially the secular ones. This includes the executive, legislatures, judiciary and institutions that were intended to act as a check and balance on unbridled government powers.

7. There has been a decline in the idea of an autonomous press, where corporatization and contractualization has impacted the choices and freedom of the press. The media has imposed an 'emergency' on itself and primarily reflects the interests of the owners.

8. An independent foreign policy that was the heritage of the non aligned movement and the outcome of the Indian national liberation struggles and was written into our history and social contract has now been abandoned. This has made the current foreign policy dependent on a US-Israel axis. This needs to be effectively countered and stopped.

9. The 'alternative' needs to be mainstreamed and made the new reality and this is possible by the reversal of neo-liberal economic policies, an independent foreign policy and inclusion of those peoples who have so far been excluded from the mainstream.

The CPA thus believes in working for a just and inclusive political and social order. It wants to evolve a consensus for equity based economic order and structures. It works towards an independent foreign policy. It looks for a truly decentralized federalism and empowerment of people at the grass roots. The CPA advocates a rights based approach to the resolution of all.
